What’s the best way to get someone’s attention? Scream? I guess that’s what Toyota thinks because it just launched an off-road trim of a pickup truck in a bright lime shade! Neither ‘Off-road’ nor ‘pickup truck’ can be associated with a lime exterior shade. But, Toyota seems to have done that with the 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro.

The 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro arrives in this new exclusive shade with some more off-road enhancements like an increased suspension lift, new shocks, etc. Sweet, huh?

The New Exterior Shade Is The Highlight Of The 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro

Did I already mention that the 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro comes with a new exterior shade? It’s called Electric Lime Metallic that is a new TRD Pro-exclusive color. This means we could see it on the other TRD Pros as well. The new shade joins the color palette which includes Super White, Gray Metallic, and Midnight Black Metallic.

Up front, the truck features a heritage-inspired grille with a color-keyed surround. The blacked-out hood scoop can be complemented with new hood graphics, too. The badges go through a bit of a shuffle. The TRD Pro badge has been removed from the front door. Instead, it now comes with a ‘Tacoma’ badge. ‘TRD Pro’ is now stamped on the rear quarter panel for more prominence and distinction from the standard models.

The truck also comes with an aluminum front skid plate with red lettering, LED headlights with sequential turn signals, and LED fog lights sourced from Rigid Industries.
